Quit Smoking Hypnosis to Stop Smoking, Does it Work?

Using quit smoking hypnosis for dealing with the psychological addiction of smoking is an ideal way of tackling this most difficult problem. With stop smoking hypnosis you can positively affect all of the emotional and psychological aspects of stopping smoking.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis Research

Research director for The National Council for Hypnotherapy published the following stop smoking hypnosis research evidence:

To find the most effective quit smoking hypnosis method a meta-analysis was employed, utilising the results of more than 600 studies totalling nearly 72,000 people.

The results, which were published in the Journal of Applied Psychology and included 48 studies of quit smoking hypnosis covering 6000 smokers, clearly showed that hypnotherapy was actually three times more effective than nicotine replacement therapy.

Other research also seems to support the efficacy of hypnosis to stop smoking.

Another analysis of 59 studies concludes that, while quit smoking hypnosis may have some benefits, it is by no means the be-all and end-all stop smoking method.

However, results of this analysis show that smokers who underwent stop smoking hypnosis fared better in terms of abstaining from smoking than did smokers who had no intervention. However, it was difficult to determine whether hypnotherapy had any benefit above and beyond other treatments.

Giving hypnotherapy the stamp of a mainstream, well-established treatment for smoking cessation therefore may still be premature. The key problem in determining the effectiveness of hypnosis quit smoking treatment is a lack of a standard way to conduct quit smoking hypnotherapy.

Across the studies, stop smoking hypnosis treatments varied in the types of questions that were asked, the number of treatments each subject underwent, and the inclusion of other smoking cessation treatments.

Nonetheless, quit smoking hypnosis is clearly an extremely popular, and many report, highly effective tool for your arsenal of stop smoking methods. Not to be ignored!
